NeXus data format

Jump to: navigation, search

The NeXus data format is a file format for storing and exchange data generated in neutron and x-ray experiments. It is built on top of the Hierarchical Data Format (HDF), which is a portable binary format, meant to be extensible and self-describing.

The intention with this format is to provide a file that contains within it all the metadata related to an experiment (e.g. beamline parameters). It can be used both for raw experimental data, and for processed versions of the data.
